Blue-winged Olives
Baetis

Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.

I caught this tiny larva without a case, but it seems to key pretty clearly to to Glossosomatidae. From there, the lack of sclerites on the mesonotum points to either Glossosoma or Anagapetus. Although it's difficult to see in a 2D image from the microscope, it's pretty clear in the live 3D view that the pronotum is only excised about 1/3 of its length to accommodate the forecoxa, not 2/3, which points to Glossosoma at Couplet 5 of the Key to Genera of Glossosomatidae Larvae.
27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cock’s wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

Hello JAD,

"Matt you and I have only meet once, so which rod are you going to give me .I hope it"s a Sage."

Huh?? What's this about giving you a rod?? Was I FUI (fishing under the influence)at the time I said that?

Where did we meet that one time? On the LJ? Please refresh my memory. Do you want to do a float in 2011?

Matt
You made me laugh, I have the same problem with gorgeous women but never with fishing pals. Ya on the j I looked over and said your Matt and I thought your jaw would fall off. You said do I know you, we talked about fishing the J.

About the float that's a long drive for me, I'm thinking about taking the small trailer and float boats picking up our buddy Louis and heading up to the Big D , If we do we will be sure to contact you.

Best
John

Hi John,

"I looked over and said your Matt and I thought your jaw would fall off."

Yes, I remember now, I was really surprised when you called me by name.
I just thought you recognized me because I'm such a well known fly fisher!

Louis has my cell # I think. If not PM me and I'll send it to you. Most of the time I'm up there Tuesday - Thursday in May and June.
